Another television show is getting the reboot treatment. Variety is reporting that The CW is developing a reboot of the USA Network drama The 4400.
CBS Television Studios, which produced the original series, will produce the reboot. For those unfamiliar with the synopsis, The 4400 chronicles the mysterious disappearances of 4,400 young adults who mysteriously reappear at the exact site where they vanished. Some disappearances date as far back as the 1950s.
None have aged or had a memory of where they have been. The series ran on the USA Network for four seasons from 2004 to 2007 and was one of the early acting appearances for Megalyn Echikunwoke and Mahershala Ali. Echikunwoke went on to star as Mari McCabe in The CW’s Arrowverse, while Mahershala Ali won an Oscar for his supporting role in Moonlight. The project will be co-written and executive produced by Taylor Elmore and Craig Sweeney.
The 4400 is the latest show to get the reboot treatment from The CW. The network is currently airing a Charmed reboot, and a Roswell reboot is set for midseason.
